A man who pushed his girlfriend out of his flat, causing her to bang her nose on the front door, has been given a community order.

As a result of the late-night incident on November 28, Roxanne Cornish suffered a broken nose, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

Before the court was Matthew Cox, 31, of Wollaston Close, Bury, who admitted common assault. He was given a community order with two years’ supervision by the probation service and ordered to attend a building better relationships course and an alcohol treatment programme.

He was also ordered to pay £135 costs and a £60 victim surcharge.

Simon Gladwell, prosecuting, said Cox had admitted the offence on the basis that Miss Cornish had suffered a broken nose after banging it on his front door as pushed her out of his flat.

He said Cox denied punching Miss Cornish or pinning her down and sitting astride her.

Lindsay Cox, for Cox, said Miss Cornish was not seeking a restraining order against his client.
